I was inspired by Pia Rom"s Mix It Monthly Challenge this month. The theme is "texture of waves, water and pirates." No pirates here but the "texture" of water caught my eye and my imagination. I knew I wanted this woman in the painting, then I added the moon and the next thing I knew she was holding the moon and became the "princess of the moon." Looks like the powers of the princess and the moon are really whipping up the waves and the wind! I love when things "appear" as you are creating and the story just comes together like that.
Above is a process pic. Just getting the girl started. The waves need more work, too. I initially thought I wanted her dress to be blue before deciding that she should be wearing the same shimmery white as the moon.

Hope you are having a creative week!
